Wild Wonders Preschool is a unique program that brings the natural world alive!  Offered for ten consecutive Mondays each fall and spring, we will connect children with nature by encouraging their natural affinity for nature.  By developing their sense of place in the world over the ten weeks, this will allows us to provide a continuous theme, deeper learning, and foster relationships between teacher, students, and the animals.

Throughout this exciting program, children will explore the many wonders of nature first-hand through dramatic play, art, stories, songs and animal encounters! The fall session will focus on the many ways animals get ready for winter and the spring session will focus on our domestic animal friends at the Wells Fargo Family Farm.

Ages: 3 or 4 years old by September 1, 2016 or in Kindergarten AND children must be group ready to participate: this includes the ability to listen and follow directions, remain with the group at all times, follow safety rules independently, and communicate with the instructor.  All children must also be toilet trained.

Visit Minnesota’s monk seals at the Minnesota Zoo, the only place in the U.S (outside of Hawaii) that you can see these animals in human care. Discover what makes these marine mammals so marvelous in a class celebrating these critically endangered seals from Hawaii.

These child-only classes are designed specifically with your preschooler in mind as they transition from toddlers to kindergartners! Through child-directed exploration, play, and age-appropriate activities, we will discover the Zoo’s amazing animals and their habitats. Research indicates that children learn best in an environment which allows them to explore, discover, and play. (J.E. Fox) Play in particular enhances language development, social competence, creativity, imagination, and thinking skills. (D.P. Fromberg and D.F. Gullo).
